Oh boy, HunterofthePegs, you're really getting down to business with these guides to the Republic/Empire. Clone Cmmander, you really did a good job getting these guides started. If I had the time, I'd love to do some of these guides for the Separatists.

Wow, very good. Short, but very short and straight to the point. Also, that's a great picture of Thrawn.

Wow, that realy covers just about all of the major battles. I can only think of three other important ones: Jabiim(Clone Wars volume 3), Mon Calimari(Clone Wars Series one and Clone Wars adventures #1), Battle of Rhen Var(Battlefront 1 and Clone Wars Video Games), and the Battle of Thule (Clone Wars video games.) I am very curious about where you get your information, like for Geonosis, were did you find the casualty numbers. That was interesting, and on Kamino, I thought there were more than three ARC Troopers deployed. Well anyway, great job!

Wow, a lot of you are putting a lot of well researched points into this argument. I have to agree a lot with the terrain argument. The Gungans were just as primitive, or perhaps a little more, than the Ewoks. Even though they were a diversion, I think they lost because of fighting on an open field with little to no cover, and combined with the fact that they had too much faith in their sheilds and were outnumbered, outgunned,and lacked the element of surprise. The Ewoks on the other hand, had a lot of cover at their disposal. Even though the scout walkers could blast right through the trees, plants and other obstacles, the stormtroopers did not know their way around the forest as well as the Ewoks. The Ewoks winning is very likely.

Now if an AT-AT were there, I believe the battle would,ve gone differently. I could see an Ewok log-swingy trap-thingy being used on an AT-AT, and the logs just bouncing off the armor. If I were the Imperial commanding officer in that engagement, I would've had my men form up by the doorway and not spread out. Ewoks had no explosives or any extremely lethal weapons, and the Rebel Commando's explosives were for blowing the bunker, so the Imperials should've used their ranged weaponds, the cover of the doorway, and the cleared space to their advantage. Just my thoughts.

Yeah, I've just finished re-reading Hard Contact on Thursday.

Why does everyone have to talk about that book. I could've gotten it on Friday, but I didn't, and now I keep regretting my decision whenever I read someone talking about how good of a book it is. Arrrgh.   >:(

P.S.- I personnally murdered 78 scalpers, and ordered the mass executions of 359 more to get my R4-P17, and had a Star Destroyer wipe out an entire population to get my Utapau warrior. I also raided a flea market with a platoon of Gungan Soldiers to liberate the Shocktroopers and Tactical Ops Troopers, killing all of the scalpers there. I lost all of them on the way out, since this guy by the name of Binks was driing our truck, and yeah, I guess you could peice it together from there. 

Wasn't Boba in ANH, or at least the Special Edition? Thought I heard that somewhere. I guess Kit Fisto would be my third choice, but I forgot about him while I was typing my post.

My bad, meant the Commander. :-[ If I meant the Nemoidian Warrior, which I didn't, I would be blind, which I'm not. Or am I...  :P

I like the idea, but I'm not too fond of it since there would be quite a few army builders, but hard to army build with at $10 each. But then again, if they were in the basic line, they would be a pain in the ass to find...  :P

He was in the Clone Wars cartoon Series two and in Labyrinth of Evil, I think thats close enough. And plenty of figures got made as ROTS figures, but weren't in the movie, like Green Clone Commander, Black Clone Pilot, Shadow Trooper, Shaak Ti, Nemoidian Warrior, AT-TE gunner, Wookie with the vest on, I could probably go on with several more, but I won't. So I think Rorron Corrobb can count as ROTS. At least he isn't as far off as some of the clones, like the Shadow Trooper. 

I'm loving the ARC Troopers. They look great. The Commander Gree is awesome, much better than the Hasbro version. The circle on the AT-RT gun straps looks like a comlink or grenade when used in that way. Oh, if you don't want that gunship or Scorch, feel free to send either one my way.  ;)

CHEWIE, sorry to hear about all your problems and stuff, hope things get better for ya!!!

This is coming from someone in the younger generation here, I'll have to say Jar Jar Binks. As a 7 yr old, I loved him, and I still do. But if you need a more backround-ish character, I'll say Plo Koon.  He has got to be the coolest Jedi ever, and I rarely saw his figure on the shelves.

Just in case you didn't know, in Star Wars, the "Lewis" gun is called a T-21 light repeating blaster.  ;)

I still love Jar-Jar performance at the battle of Naboo. And I love Jar-Jar altogether. I mean, come on, how could you hate him? Seriously?

I like the Arena battle in AOTC, that one was cool.

Hmmm... Clone Wars cartoon... Lets see, I enjoyed Episodes 20 and 23. Those two were my favorites.

In ROTS, the space battle was cool, but it seems to get shorter and shorter each time I watch it. I guess the best part of ROTS is either the duel, seeing all those Wookiees, watching Yoda knock down the guards, Order 66, or the Battle of Utapau.
